Welcome to Historic Newburgh, Inc.
Historic Newburgh, Inc. is your go-to source for what is happening in Newburgh, Indiana. Our community has been a National Main Street Community for over 30 years. Perched on the banks of the Ohio River, Historic Newburgh has unique shopping and dining, sightseeing and strolling, festivals and events. There are four distinct shopping areas in this little town of 3000 people. There is the north end along State Street near the American Legion, the west end along Hwy 662, the Jennings Station Area and Downtown. There is something for everyone.
The organizers of the fundraising campaign for The Little Red Brick House are thrilled to announce that campaign on Kickstarter was a success! This morning the fundraising total was just over $12,000 of the $19,000 goal set. As the campaign came to a close the tally rolled just past the $19,000 to close out at $19,176.
With these funds the campaign to move the house has crossed the $50,000 mark. This $50,000 also includes a grant from the Indiana Historical Society. A final grant proposal that will be submitted to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) will allow the project to reach completion if awarded. The funds raised in this Kickstarter campaign will be used as the matching funds required for this OCRA grant proposal. Beyond the grants, this project could not be accomplished without the support of the community. Between the Kickstarter Campaign and donations received at Historic Newburgh, Inc. over 150 individuals and families made personal donations. Without the belief in the project and the backing of these individuals the campaign would not be a success. The goal of the campaign is to relocate, restore and repurpose this historic structure in the Old Lock and Dam Park along The Ohio River Scenic Byway.
